COCAINE and cannabis were seized by cops after they stormed a pub suspected of being a hub for drug dealing, writes Lorraine King.
Drinkers at The Falcon Pub in Kilburn Lane, Queen's Park, were searched after Brent Police teamed up with the Territorial Support Group to carry out the raid at 10.50pm on Friday.
The pub is located on the busy roundabout island that merges Queen's Park with Kilburn, and Brent with Westminster.
Fed-up residents expressed their concerns about suspected drug dealing to officers from Queen's Park Safer Neighbourhoods Team which led to the raid.
A total of four men were arrested and a quantity of drugs were recovered.
A 44-year-old was cautioned for possession of Class A drugs, a 37-year-old has been bailed to return to a police station next month on suspicion of possessing class A and C drugs.

Sergeant Graeme Day from Queens Park Safer Neighbourhoods Team said: "I am pleased with this result.
"We have built a strong relationship with the local community and if it was not for their help in providing us with this information we would not have got this great result.
"This sends out a strong message to people who are engaging in illegal drugs activity that it will not be tolerated.
"We will continue to address this problem to make Brent a safer borough.
